You have been ever a sympathetic and faithful instructor, 
but you have been more than that. In your ten years of service 
to E.N.C. you have become a friend and counsellor in whom 
we have developed implicit confidence. You have shared 
gladly in our sorrows and we have been happy to include you 
in our joys. In hours of pain and distress we have turned to 
you, and your gentle hand and kindlv heart have administered 
peace. Your own life has been tried in the crucible and we have 
seen of what metal it is made. We see in you a relentless 
optimist, an untiring laborer for the Master, and an example 
which we may follow but never hope to equal. 

Therefore, to you we gratefully dedicate this book, the 
Nautilus of 1938. 

\ / 


As another year has hurried past to join the ranks of those that live only in 
memory, we have tried to catch glimpses here and there of the days which have 
been such happy ones for all of us. We have pictured E.N.C. faithfully — our Alma 
Mater as we have seen her. We know that our picture is only a fragmentary one, 
but it is as truly representative of E.N.C. as we could make it. It is our hope that 
somewhere, down the dim trails of the future, this book may call up poignant memo- 
ries of days we would all gladly live over again. 

TD E. N. C. 

The summer breeze is gently sweeping 
Across the rippling Quincy Bay. 
The morning sun again is rising 
To bring another perfect day. 
Its radiant beams shine forth in splendor 
To chase the shadows from the sea, 
While in our classic halls we gather 
To praise our E.N.C. 

The shadow of thy towering maples 
Protects us from the noonday sun; 
As 'neath their boughs we linger idly 
To laugh and chat and have our fun. 
We love our glorious Alma Mater, 
To her we pledge our loyalty; 
We bring our tribute of devotion 
To dear old E.N.C. 

We see amid the falling twilight 
The embers of the dying day 
While comrades linger in its shadows 
To take new courage for the way. 
Together bearing high her banner, 
Linked firm in Christian unity, 
Accept the challenge of tomorrow; 
Be true to E.N.C.

Under the vigorous and dynamic leadership of our President, E.N.C. is going 
forward. We have found in him a ready friend — one who understands us and our 
problems and one to whom we can look for guidance in times of perplexity and 
distress. He has gained our confidence, and he has inspired those with whom he has 
had dealings to new faith in E.N.C. 

He has spent many gruelling weeks and travelled thousands of weary miles in 
the interests of our college, and he has always come back buoyant and optimistic, 
believing ever in E.N.C. So, to him we offer our gratitude for the past and pledge 
our loyalty for the future. We firmly believe that God will accomplish mighty 
things through him, and it is our prayer that the years ahead shall be for him years 
of enrichment and accomplishment.

'The way to a man s heart — 




Jesus Christ is God's ideal for man. In Him the perfect standard of manhood 
was set up. To approximate that ideal man must experience the recreation of his 
moral and spiritual nature through redemption in Christ, and must volitionally and 
actively co-operate with God's will in a continued process of character development 
"till he comes in the knowledge of the Son of God unto a perfect man, unto the 
measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ." One way in which our actual co-op- 
eration is proved is by a rigid discipline of self. Disciplinary measures imposed by 
others may be good, but the only discipline with which a guarantee of success is 
given is self-discipline. Paul said "I keep under my body and bring it into subjec- 
tion." He referred here doubtless to the most elemental field for self-discipline, one's 
physical being. He knew that as a redeemed man there were desires of the body 
which must be controlled. If these go unrestrained and unbridled they will enslave 
and fetter a man until he is helpless to control himself. He becomes an indulgent 
prodigal. If, however, those same desires are disciplined, by that fact one demon- 
strates his strength and poise. A man who can bring in subjection to an enlightened 
intellect and holy will all the physical desires of his being is a man of strength. 

But it is in the realm of the mind that self-discipline begins to reveal its worth 
and to make its severer tests. No mind undisciplined can be said to be strong. There 
are those who have keen minds which have never been disciplined. They are chaotic 
and unreliable. On the other hand, there are those whose minds are of the slow and 
plodding type who by discipline and strong purpose have developed capacities of a 
very high order. Mental discipline requires determination. It may mean that one 
does what he has no desire to do, even that which is distasteful. Earlv in life one 
must learn that he can not always do just what he would like. It would be a good 
practice for us to do some things because we do not want to do them; to take some 
subjects in college that are not of our particular liking, if for the only reason that 
we must do things we do not want to do throughout life. 

Again, self-discipline may be exercised in the realm of the spirit. The wise man 
said, "He that ruleth his spirit is better than he that taketh a city." One must 
school himself to live above the spirit of the world and the spirit of selfishness. 
Even when one is sanctified, body, soul, and spirit, he must impose upon himself 
certain voluntary restraints. He must rule out intolerance and cultivate understand- 
ing. He must refuse to be peevish and cultivate magnanimity and good grace. He 
must guard against self-conceit and crave humility. He must loath crudeness and 
seek for refinement of spirit. He must fight suspicion and let his spirit breathe the 
air of confidence. He must drive out doubt and welcome faith. He must banish 
pessimism and cling to hope. He must exclude all unholy tempers and "let love be 
without dissimulation." 

Christian education is one of the greatest aids to self-discipline. It places upon 
one enough restraint to help him to learn to say "No". It suggests rules of living 
that encourage one to bow gracefully to the demands under which he may be placed. 
It places before one the highest ideal, toward which he is to press with all diligence. 
It postulates God and offers His all-sufficient grace to enable one to accomplish every 

Eastern Nazarene College offers a Christian education. It affords aids to self- 
discipline. It lends full co-operation to voting people who desire to attain unto the 
character of God's ideal. Jesus Christ is God's ideal for man.

Open Letter To Nazarene Colleges 

Throughout this year letters have flown back and forth among the various 
editors of Nazarene College year-books, and the general content of them all has been 
that there should be created more feeling among our colleges. It is, perhaps, not 
even necessary to specify the kind of feeling. We at E.N.C. need a concrete working 
attitude toward our other schools. Why should not we as Nazarene students get 
acquainted and formulate, as far as possible, common attitudes and policies? It does 
none of us any good to segregate ourselves and refuse to admit the existence of other 
schools which hold the same standards as ourselves. 

College days are short, and soon we shall be going out to carry on our varied 
activities in various parts of the country. Charles M. Crouch, Editor of Pasadena's 
"La Sierra" writes: "I want to know more about the young people with whom I 
shall be compelled to associate in the not so distant future. I feel that our colleges 
should adopt a policy of integration along as many lines as possible." 

The "Nautilus" Editor heartily agrees and offers a definite suggestion in that 
direction. Why not have all our 1939 year-books incorporate an exchange page which 
may contain brief messages from the student body head or someone representative of 
each college? Our college newspapers, too, can aid powerfully in creating among us 
a common bond of confidence. '"Let us then be workers together", for divided we 
shall fall. 

All who read this will know that this is an age in which much of the educational 
world is in array against the Person and teachings of Christ. We who believe in 
Him and in His Kingdom must stand together, forgetting petty differences in con- 
certed striving toward that larger goal. So let us "forget those things which are 
behind" as we press forward toward the mark. 

We at E.N.C. are sure that we are not alone in this point of view. And you who 
are students of other colleges may be sure that E.N.C. stands ready to co-operate in 
any effort toward a more complete and wholesome understanding. D. H. S. 


There was a day when a smile usually meant a warm glow of greeting; when 
a handshake meant real friendliness; and when a compliment could be taken as sincere 
praise for something accomplished. But in our day of superficiality, we fear that 
things have changed. Since the era of "put yourself across" has arrived, one hardly 
knows how to interpret the actions of some of his associates. A smile may be merely 
a skeleton, covering like a mask ill-feelings or deep hurts. Words of praise may be 
only a means to an end. Perhaps we should stop to consider how much of the interest 
that we take in other people is real and vital. Are we becoming superficial in our 
efforts to make people like us? 

Why not be natural? We cannot always be smiling and singing, and people 
appreciate seriousness and sobriety occasionally as well as laughter. We need the 
thoughtful and the quiet as well as the light and the frivolous. And we do not like 
to see our friends exhibiting senseless optimisms. The kind of friend all of us want, 
when the clouds are dark and threatening, is not the cheery idiot who says, "Oh, 
it ain't gonna rain no mo' ", but the honest, thrifty, trusting one who will lend us 
an umbrella. 

When you have done your best with what you have, you need not fear the results. 
You will be admired and respected when you have done your honest, level best, and 
only then. D. S. M.

"To be honest, as this world goes, is to be one

His is the questionable honor of be- 
coming famous because he couldn't sing

knows the source of his fame so he will 
not mind our frankness. Anyhow, it 
got him the Freshman presidency and a 
place in the L.E.S. quartet of 1935- 

John applied himself at once to serious 
study, and soon became one of E.N.C.'s 
elite in the scholastic realm. We are not 
surprised that he emerges as Salutatorian 
of his class. 

Description: Hard worker, faithful 
student, all-round athlete. 

We wish you success in your further 
work in history, John, and we know that 
your resolute purpose and serious appli- 
cation will take you through.

Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania 

1 '■They' re only truly great who are 
truly good. 

We had heard much about Ross before 
the weatherbeaten old Essex came creak- 
ing up the drive with the Pennsylvania 
gang. When we saw the "Pitt" Uni- 
versity star play basket-ball we admired 
him, but when we heard his testimony 
and saw his radiant Christian life we 
grew to respect him highly. 

Ross has worked hard for E.N.C.; as 
athletic director, twice class president, 
N.Y.P.S. president, student pastor, and 
even official clown. We have appreciated 
his optimism, his good common sense, 
and his loyalty to E.N.C. 

We are informed that Ross is a firm 
believer in Christian Fellowship. Here's 
believing he will make his goal.

"Only a sweet and virtuous soul, like 
seasoned timber, never gives. 

Proudly we present the Valedictorian 
of our Senior Class. Quiet and unas- 
suming, she has lived and worked among 
us, never shouting her presence to the 
world. But under that modest exterior 
are a heart and a character as faithful 
and as dependable as the Ad Building 
pillars. Gibraltar is belittled by the 
unyielding consistency of her Christian 
life and by her stedfast optimism. 

Most of us know her as a hungry ogress 
standing behind the bars of her cage on 
Mondays to gobble up our hard-earned 
money. But she is also an author of no 
mean merit and we predict that we shall 
hear more from her.

"/ am constant as the Northern Star,

Here is a man whom we are really 
going to miss, because he has gained our 
sincere respect and confidence. We shall 
remember him as a keen thinker, a 
devoted Christian, and a staunch friend. 

Because Henry has served as Assistant 
Dean — do not tell this! — he says that he 
is going on a big "spree" before he leaves 
E.N.C. Let all his enemies beware. 

You might mistake Henry for a pro- 
fessor until you heard him unleash some 
of his subtle witticisms or saw him in a 
mad scramble on the basket-ball floor. 

Our friendship goes with you, Henry, 
into what we are sure will be a life of 
worthwhile service.

Wollaston, Massachusetts 

"It is in learning music that many 
youthful hearts learn love." 

Ralph's days at E.N.C. have been 
strenuous ones. He figures that he has 
spent about as much time away from 
school as at school. No sooner did he 
arrive here than he was drafted into the 
L.E.S. quartet, graduating then to the 
college quartet in which he has sung for 
two years. 

Ralph is the distinguished manager of 
the college book-store, and we have had 
the pleasure of making him chase us all 
over town to collect month-old bills. 

It is rumored that Ralph is thinking 
of taking work in the Pianoforte De- 
partment next year — he claims that he 
has had previous experience. May his

"The worst of me is known, and I can say 
that I am better than the fame I bear. 

Four years ago she was a demure little 
auburn-haired Freshman, bashful and 
unnoticed, but having withal a certain 
winsome charm. Through these years 
she has gained our respect as a conscien- 
tious student, and she has served this 
year as president of the Honor Society. 
Her work is never spectacular, but its 
real worth is evidenced by the fact that 
she is voted this year's most popular girl 
and best all-round girl. 

Picture: Dead-eye Mills making 20

"It is a friendly heart that has plenty

Bearing the official title of "Wit-

"Swiftie". When the Campus Camera 
comes out, headlines are forgotten in a 
mad scramble for the "Some Sense" 
column. None other can be so serious 
and so hilariously droll all at once. 

But Thelma has also achieved an 
enviable scholastic record. (She says, 
"Go thou and do likewise".) She has 
worked hard at all she has undertaken. 
And she probably little suspects how 
much her cheery presence and friendly 
words have often meant to us. 

Portrait: a true friend, a sincere Chris- 
tian, dependable and unchanging as her 
own West Virginia hills. 

Sincere wishes for lifelong happiness, 

"With malice toward none; with charity for 
all; with firmness in the right as God gives us

we shall remember her pushing her head

but he has a mind that can race at light-

chiefly for his unsurpassed ability as a

served E.N.C. 

It would be the "most unkindest cut of 
all" not to mention "Strongie's" humor. 
He thrives on witticisms — punny, Funny, 
and sunny, and we never find him in a 
dull mood. 

We wish for vou a life fruitful in the 
Master's Kingdom. 


Norman Trafton 


Fredericton, New Brunswick 

"Backbone, not wishbone." 

From "Way down East" in New 
Brunswick came this preacher lad to 
E.N.C. Seniors will remember him as he 
sang in their stupendous Freshman pro- 
gram and also in the L.E.S. quartet and 
the Clarion quartet. 

We have always admired "Norm" for 
his sincerity and his courage to do what 
he believed right even though others 
did not always agree. We recommend 
him as a philosopher in his own right, a 
man of sound common sense. He has 
made good use of his time, studying as 
much as most of us and holding a student 
pastorate as well. 

We wish for you a successful future, 
Norm, in the service of the Master. 

Earl Wolf 


Waterford, Pennsylvania 

"Whence is thy learning. Hath thy toil o'er 
books consumed the midnight oill" 

Not the Big Bad Wolf but only a small 
bad Wolf. And anyone who has ever 
heard "Wolfie" laugh knows why we 
run to find him whenever we hear a good 

Earl has been a faithful worker and a 
loyal student. Once he was found sitting 
in his room crying because he had one 
grade on his card below A plus. 

We will remember him for his excellent 
work as business manager of the 1937 
Nautilus and as president of the Student 
Council for this year. 

He plans to study some more, and one 
day we shall be sending our sons and 
daughters to Eastern Nazarene University 
to study theology under Dr. Wolf. 

Until then, best regards, Wolfie. 



Class Motto — Alta Petens 

There are two facts in my life which I expect never to regret. One is that I be- 
came a Christian, and the other is that I came to E.N.C. I came to college with the 
feeling that here I would learn to defend those deeper and higher things of which we 
are speaking. But during the last four years my attitude has changed. Today I 
feel that these deeper and higher values are the "first principles" of life itself, and 
that they need no defense. Perhaps I was more or less ashamed of them before. But 
in attempting to build up a defense for them I have become thoroughly convinced of 
their real worth myself. Doris Goodrich 

E.N.C has imparted to me a sense or appreciation of value. Since it is impossible 
to do everything it is essential that we evaluate everything and concentrate our 
energy upon only the best things. 

Another benefit is the contact which I have had with persons of noble character. 
My friends, my associates have done much toward making me better in every respect. 

There is always room at the top. We can never exhaust the vast stretch of knowl- 
edge and field for accomplishment but we can keep pushing out into deeper depths of 
thought, knowledge, and spirituality. John Coleman 

I can truthfully say that E.N.C. has helped my spiritual, scholastic, and social 
life. I have learned new truths, I have made new friends, but most important of all 
I have made a firm decision to consider Christ in all my plans. Regardless of the price 
I am going to be a stalwart Christian. Ruth Shepherd 

The most appreciated contribution is my new philosophy of life. From a restless 
and dissatisfied life I've really found rest and assurance in living for God. Fellow- 
ship with Christ is a vital part of my life. My ambition is to ever hold God highest 
in my affections and to worship Him sincerely. Esther Mills 

The Bible tells us to grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior. 
I am glad for the privilege I have had of knowing Him here at E.N.C. These last few 
months, since I have found Christ, have been most precious to me. My desire is to 
live a life pleasing to Him. Thelma Swift 

To state mv appreciation of E.N.C. a comparison of it with non-Christian schools 
which I have attended is inevitable. There I was taught to be "liberal", to avoid 
dogmatism of the older schools. Here at E.N.C. I have proved Jesus' words, "Ye 
shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." Marian Washburn 

In my pursuit of truth E.N.C. has made a definite contribution. She has in- 
stilled within me a greater desire to seek, covet, and contend for truth in the face of 
all odds, opposition, or persecution; and she has intensified the desire to strive after 
the highest and the best realities — realities which I believe are found only in the 
answer to the question, "What is truth?". Henry Koehler 

At E.N.C. I have gained a true perspective of the relative importance of my life. 
I have realized my smallness in the infinite greatness of God's creation. However 
small the place may be, it is of tremendous importance that I fill mv place in His 
great plan. It is mv purpose to use what knowledge I have gained and shall gain by 
further study that I may best "stand in the gap" that is His place for my life.

'Study to show thyself approved unto God,

Albert H. Lewis 
New Haven, Connecticut 

"The greatest truths are the simplest, and so are the simplest men." 

We offer our congratulations to a young man who has gained the respect and 
admiration of all who have known him. He has distinguished himself, not by making 
himself conspicuous, but by the seriousness of his purpose and by his perseverance in 
carrying it out. 

Al, like most of us, has had to earn his own way through school, and he has had 
as many difficulties as the rest of us — and out of it all he has emerged victorious. 

Many of us shall remember Al pounding on what to us was a row of wooden 
slats and making music out of it. That is just like him, making opportunities out of 

He is usually serious, but there is a twinkle in his eye, and his humor is that 
New England drollery that gets you when you aren't looking. 

His sincerity, his unyielding faith, and his fearlessness will, we are sure, make 
his ministry a success. 

Your many friends, Al, wish you happiness and God's blessing upon your life 
and your labors in His service. 

"So act as to treat personality, whether in yourself or in another, always as an end and 
never as a means." S. S. W.

The Pianoforte Department of our College reports a very successful year thus far, 
with thirty students registered in its various divisions. The Department is under the 
supervision of Professor Edith Cove, with Miss Ruth Fader and Miss Olive Bynon as 
assistants. Professor Cove is now taking work at the New England Conservatory of 
Music toward her Mus.M. degree. Miss Fader is also taking work at the Conserva- 
tory toward her Mus.B. degree. 

In addition to the regular piano lessons, the Department offers theoretical courses 
in Solfeggio, Harmony, History of Music and Musical Theory. 

One outstanding feature of the work this year has been the Pianoforte Normal 
Department, organized for the purpose of affording practice teaching for the advanced 
students in pianoforte. This year there are forty children from the community en- 
rolled in the Department. The student teachers are Ivan Beckwith, Ruth Kallgren, 
June Romig, Evangeline Garrison and Marcella Allshouse. 

Definite progress was made this year by the addition of a new course in Public 
School Music. This course is of particular value to students who are training to be 
teachers in the public schools. It is conducted by Mr. Arlington Visscher, who also 
is working for his Mus.B. at the New England Conservatory. Mr. Visscher has 
recently been honored by appointment to membership in the New England Conserva- 
tory Orchestra. 

With the installation of the new organ, organ lessons have been added to the 
curriculum of the Music Department. The facilities and program of the Pianoforte 
Department are rapidly expanding, and the outlook is favorable for an increase in 
size and in effectiveness. 

"All we have willed or hoped or dreamed of good shall exist; 
Not its semblance, but itself; no beauty, nor good, nor power 
Whose voice has gone forth, but each survives for the melodist 
When eternity affirms the conception of an hour. 
The high that proved too high, the heroic for earth too hard, 
The passion that left the ground to lose itself in the sky, 
Are music sent up to God by the lover and the bard; 
Enough that He heard it once: we shall hear it by and by." 

— Browning 

"All worlds subdue 
And by subduing, grow to be 
A soul broad-shouldered, grand and free, 
Untrammeled as the restless sea; 
So that, departing, men may scan 
Your life, and say, "There lived a man". 



"How good is man's life, the mere living! how fit to employ 
All the heart and the soul and the senses forever in joy." 




'Then I tuned my harp, — took off the lilies we twine round its chords 
Lest they snap 'neath the stress of the noontide — those sunbeams like swords!"

This year saw the birth of a new organization at E.N.C. The two Glee Clubs are 
now ancient history, for they have been blended together in the proper proportions, 
giving us an A Cappella Choir. 

This new singing aggregation will make its first public appearance at the College 
in June, when it will present a concert. However, it is also scheduled for some appear- 
ances outside the school. 

It is a little too early in the life of this organization to make many guaranteed 
predictions regarding its future, but we can and Jo wish for it the best of success. It 
is the desire of the director, Mrs. Esther D. Williamson, that this societj become a 
regular institution at E.N.C. which shall be able to represent the school effectively. 
Already we feel that it has become a vital part of our Music Department and of our 



Our history of the year would be quite incomplete without honorable mention 
of our new Reuter pipe organ. On Monday, January 10, there was something in the 
air which caused Professor Cove to literally "dance for joy". The organ had come. 
History was made on Friday evening, January 21, when the inaugural recital was 
played before a large and appreciative audience by Miss Annie Rienstra, organist of 
the Trinity Episcopal Church in Pawtucket, R. I. The organ was formally dedicated 
in a service held on Sunday morning, January 23- 

The organ is the gift to the College of the Music Department and its friends. The 
untiring energy and foresight of Professor Cove are largely responsible for the acquisi- 
tion of this new instrument. 

Endless correspondence, contacts with companies and agents, arrangements to 
hear various organs, and much other detail work was done by Ivan Beckwith, to 
whom also much credit is due. 

The organ has already added much to our programs and our church services, and 
we trust that it shall be a source of blessing and benefit in the days to come.

The vocal apparatus of the Students' Organization is the Student Council. The 
Council is a representative group of ten members which voices our opinions, expresses 
our thoughts, and generally promotes the welfare of our student body. 

A new feature of the Council activity this year has been the conducting of chapel 
services on every other Wednesday. These services have been in charge of the various 
classes and societies on our campus, and have proved to be of great benefit and inspira- 
tion to the students. 

The Student Council has done admirable work in planning a schedule of Friday 
night programs for the entire year. The programs have demonstrated their own 
value by the way they have attracted the students, faculty and friends. Such enter- 
tainments as the Fine Arts program, joint Oxford-Nobel program, the presentation 
of the Messiah, the Orchestra recital, the Hallowe'en party, the New Student program, 
and the Valentine Banquet cannot easily be forgotten. 

In a chapel service, Earl Wolf, president of the Student Council, presented Presi- 
dent Williamson on his birthday with a Moore fountain pen, desk set, desk lamp, 
and draperies for his office, the gift of students and faculty. 

This year the Student Council has made revisions in its Constitution. The most 
important revision is that defining the major and minor offices of our many campus 
organizations. The new ruling is that one student may hold only one major and one 
minor office or three minor offices in one semester. It is expected that this change 
will bring about more effective work in the offices involved. 

Our Student Council deserves the commendation of every student for its faithful 
work. Not only does it promote constructive student activities, but it encourages a 
wholesome spirit of co-operation between students and administration.

The Campus Camera, our college newspaper, was two years old in February. It 
has matured rapidly from a young publication into a full-grown bi-weekly newspaper 
of five columns with 340 subscribers. 

The Editor and the Business Manager of the Campus Camera are elected each year 
by the Students' Organization. The purpose of the college paper is not so much to 
train the members of its staff, as to maintain and direct the highest type of college 
spirit, and to give the college an opportunity to express itself in a practical and lasting 

The Campus Camera presents its material in a unique manner. Its write-ups are 
interesting and entertaining. Our Camera has become a definite part of our educational 
development, for it receives contributions from all departments. During this year, 
several new features have been added to the paper and its general make-up has been 
changed. "Vox Stude" gives opportunity for an all-student participation. The 
faculty are given their say in "The Prof. Says". Our paper gives attention to all 
phases of school activity. 

This year the Camera has been under the very capable direction of Donald Metz, 
who with an efficiently organized staff has enjoyed a year of success in editing our 
college newspaper. The business staff also has done commendably in soliciting 
advertisements to make publication possible.

The Honor Society was organized several years ago by the student body for the 
promotion of true scholarship and real educational attainment. In previous years 
this society has been only an honorary one, but in October, 1936, it organized as an 
active society. The objective of the Society this year has been to make the students 
of E.N. C. "best conscious". 

At their first meeting on September 20, the "Intelligentzia" assembled their wits 
and planned their work for the year. Early in the first semester a drive for magazine 
subscriptions was sponsored by the Honor Society. As a result of this effort, eleven 
magazines were added to the Library for the use of the students. 

In the chapel service conducted by the Honor Society on November 22, Dean 
Munro sounded the keynote of the endeavors of the Society in her talk on "Choosing 
the Best". In defining the proportions for a well-rounded life, she said, "One should 
be a philosopher with a perspective, a saint giving unselfish devotion and an artist 
making as well as enjoying beauty". 

In June a scholarship amounting to one semester's tuition will be awarded by 
the Honor Society to the student exhibiting the best all-round development. 

The aim of the Honor Society has been to make the students of E.N.C. feel their 
obligation to contribute something worthwhile to their Alma Mater, and to make 
them realize the value of the educational opportunity which thev have. Membership 
in the Society has come to be regarded as truly an honor, and many have been inspired 
to greater effort by the incentive which it has presented.

The Historical Society began the year with vigorous activity. On a crisp morning 
in October, the "historians" arose at 6:00 a.m. to undertake a long hike which ended 
at the "Dugout", where the first business session of the year was held over pancakes, 
bacon and coffee. 

On October 14, Leonard M. Spangenberg, Managing Editor of Babson's Reports, 
Inc., gave an illustrated lecture on behalf of the Historical Society. He spoke on his 
impressions of the European situation, as gathered during his recent trip abroad to 
investigate the contingency of war in Europe. 

The Society proved to its own satisfaction, on October 23, that it can sponsor a 
trip successfully, rain or shine. The trip to the South Shore took place on scheduled 
time in spite of disagreeable weather. Outstanding features of the trip were visits to 
Plymouth Rock, Dorothy Quincy House, Presidents' Church, and Pilgrim Hall. 

President "Steve" Bennett represented the Society at the annual convention of 
the International Relations Clubs, held at Colby Junior College in New Hampshire. 

Again this year the Society has been under the capable guidance of its adviser, 
Professor Marquart. The purpose of the organization is to keep alive the interest of 
the students in historical knowledge, and it holds bi-weekly meetings to discuss 
world affairs. 

The pride of these amateur historians is based upon their well-earned reputation 
of being one of the most active of E.N.C.'s many societies. They have co-operated 
in the project of subscribing to magazines for our Library, and they have played an 
important part in the activities of our college throughout this year.

On "Rush Day" the Nobels proved their interest in higher things as well as their 
originality. Earthly things were momentarily forgotten while everyone gazed on 
high at the airplane which dipped in salute over our campus, flying the Blue and 
White. On that memorable day, amid songs and cheers, many new students set sail 
with the "Vikings". 

On January 28, the Nobels gave us an interesting picture of a Nobel reunion in 
the year 1950 at the home of Rev. and Mrs. Arthur Fallon in Kansas City. 

Attractions planned for this year by the Nobels have included the annual hike 
and breakfast at Squantum, the unique St. Patrick's Day banquet, and the program 
celebrating the twentieth anniversary of the founding of E.N.C. 

The Nobels have exhibited their usual fine sportsmanship and have helped to 
provide many thrills in football, basket-ball, track and baseball. 

Success to you — Nobels!

As a prologue to "Rush Day" activities, the Oxford Literary Society recruited 
the best of its talent for the joint program which was given on September 24. The 
big day found the Earl Lee bird and his flock up and doing. Candy sweets enticed the 
new students and even the Nobels to the colorful Oxford booth, and the Oxford band 
added zest to the occasion. Thirty-seven new students proudly entered the Oxford 
ranks as the anchor was drawn for the year's voyage. 

With the Oxford program of December 3 came the Yuletide spirit to our campus. 
The Society chose December 21 for their Christmas celebration which consisted of a 
banquet and then fun in the recreation parlors. 

In sports, the Oxfords have shown their usual "gameness" and fighting spirit on 
both the basket-ball court and the diamond. 

Best wishes, Oxfords!

The League of Evangelical Students is a vital part of E.N.C. student life. Not 
only does it help us maintain the necessary and proper spiritual emphasis upon our 
campus, but it affords practical training and experience for those students who are 
preparing for religious work. For the enlightment of any who may not be familiar 
with the name, this society is the modern successor to the Evangelistic Association. 
The chief difference is the fact that this society is part of a national organization, 
which has branches in many colleges throughout the country. 

This year the League has been organized into eight groups, each one having its 
own preacher, pianist, and leader. Each group works independently in conducting 
weekly prayer meetings and various public services. The value of the League to the 
students is well indicated by the fact that it has a membership of about fifty-five. 

In addition, visits have been made regularly to many Boston missions, including 
Union Rescue, Sunshine, Merrimac, Morgan Memorial, and Salvation Army halls. 
Often groups have held services in churches, both of our own and other denomina- 
tions. In five months, members of the League have conducted over one hundred and 
fifty services. 

Our Chapter of the League of Evangelical Students is doing valuable and lasting 
work in proclaiming the full gospel for which our church and our college stand. 
And this organization in particular deserves our sincere commendation and our 
whole-hearted support.

Tis a tradition that each College Rhetoric class present the best of their writings, 
thought, and fun, assembled in what is known as the Green Book. At the present 
writing, the 1938 staff inform us that they have their first publication ready for press 
and are planning to edit another one. Congratulations to all concerned. And thus 
another Green Book, product of anxious days and sleepless nights, makes its bow. 

We, the older and perhaps more conservative students need your enthusiasm, 
Freshmen. It spurs us on. Instinctively we divine the new life that is among us. It 
is our hope that in the first fruits of your concentrated efforts you may bring forth the 
beginnings of an unending stream of blessing and benefit that shall enlarge as the 
years go by. 

Another Green Book! Yes, it is one of the most memorable events in the lives of 
first-year students. In the nearly ceaseless activity of college life, they do find time 
for relaxation and amusement. But best of all, they present to us in readable form a 
reflection of their lives. And though these Rhetoricians have been obliged to plan 
and grind and make minutes count, they will look back upon the time in years to 
come as having been well spent. 

Freshmen, the Green Book is a part of yourselves — or rather, you become a part of 
it. You sacrifice a bit, work a bit, and strive to keep it worthy of E.N.C. We, your 
friends, will take pleasure in reading your contributions to your Alma Mater.

There is an old myth concerning one Antaeus, a giant of ancient davs. According 
to the story he was born by Mother Earth, but in order to remain alive, it was neces- 
sary for him to touch her at least every few minutes. Every time he touched her, lo! 
his strength was renewed and became double what it had been before. How he must 
have grown! And how quickly he would have died, had he failed to keep in touch 
with his source of life. 

Like this mythical giant is our Alumni Association. Born by our Alma Mater — 
"Old P.C.I." and now "E.N.C." — we are dependent upon her for continued life. 
Each spring we must come to her for graduates. Each Alumni Day we must come to 
her for renewed enthusiasm and interest and plans for another year. Throughout 
each year we must keep in touch with her by prayer for her, bv giving to her, and by 
constantly keeping ourselves informed about her. Only in this manner can our 
Association continue to live and grow. 

Because of the renewed spirit of co-operation and the plans made last spring, this 
year promises to be one of the best our Association has known. 

However, there remains much to be accomplished. To this end we make the 
following suggestions: 

Pray for your Alma Mater. 

Plan to attend the Alumni Day exercises this year. 

Pay your Alumni dues and make some contribution, however small, to the 
college every year through the Association. 

Encourage young people to come to E.N.C. 

Work toward the formation of local E.N.C. groups wherever possible. 

As our Association becomes larger, we will be able to undertake greater things. 
Meanwhile, we can all work at these objectives. 

Our Alma Mater has helped make us. Let us help make her a great college of 
which we may all continue to be proud. H. Blair Ward

One of the outstanding features of this year at E.N.C. has been the clean, whole- 
some spirit of co-operation and fellowship that has been demonstrated. Especially 
is this true with regard to the religious attitude upon our campus. From main- 
quarters has come the comment that this has been one of the best vears we have had 
in a long time. Our church services particularly have manifested the presence of God, 
and all of our campus relationships have been conducted in an orderly and Christian 

There have been fewer of the usual little disturbances, and there has been more 
serious effort applied to study and worthwhile occupations. The number of names on 
the honor roll has reached a new high. From every point of view, whether it be 
religious, scholastic, or social, we feel that we have enjoyed a prosperous and success- 
ful year. 

It has been apparent this year that more of our number than usual have been 
motivated by a sincere desire to serve Christ and to further His Kingdom. That 
sour, discordant note of skepticism and unbelief which we have heard in other years 
has been conspicuous only by its absence. Instead, our hearts have been warmed and 
elevated by our common faith, and we have been bound together by our common 
objectives in a year of harmonious accomplishment. E. M. M. 


The World Day of Prayer at Eastern Nazarene College — a wonderful day in her 
history — yea, more than that! God's throne was reached for the future days of E.N.C. 

As the eight o'clock classes assembled in the Chapel on Friday, March 4, Pro- 
fessor Dixon brought us a stirring and refreshing message on the "Faith of Daniel". 
At the end of this first period we were dismissed by President Williamson to go to 
our regular classrooms, but we were urged to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. 
Few classes were held. The entire Administration Building rang with songs, testi- 
monies, exhortations and prayers. Yes, God was in the classrooms, for here and 
there students prayed through to victory. 

At 11:45, the regular Chapel hour, we all reassembled in the Chapel, where all 
those who could remained for the rest of the day. The faculty and the various classes 
took turns in conducting the chain of prayer which lasted until six o'clock. 

Among the requests made of God in faith believing were $10,000 by May first 
and 100 new students next September. As the members of the administration, faculty, 
and student body prayed, a responsibility seemed to weigh upon us: first, that of 
being trusted with the lightened financial load which of course the $10,000 would 
bring; second, that of keeping the Spirit of God upon us that we might be able to 
assimilate a larger student body. 

We were especially impressed by the sincere prayer of our President under this 
burden and responsibility: "We do not want $10,000 nor $100,000 if it will hinder 
even one soul from finding God at E.N.C." 

The climax which was reached in the evening service was described by main as 
an old-fashioned camp-meeting. Hearts were melted and spontaneous expressions 
of thanksgiving and praise to God came from the throng who had gathered around 
the altar to see the last soul through to victory. 

God's promise, "If ye draw nigh unto me, I will draw nigh unto you", was 
tested and proved at E.N.C. on March 4, 1938. E. 1. M.

I shall never forget my first glimpse of the mountains. We had been traveling 
for hours, and always our course had been taking us higher and higher in the foot- 
hills. But the rise was so gradual and the trees were so dense that we could see only 
a short distance on either side of the car. Then, with amazing suddenness, the gran- 
deur of it spread before us. 

To the right, to the left, and directly before me the mountains lifted mighty 
peaks to the October sky. From base to summit they blazed with color. There was 
deep crimson and shining gold — such as kings might wear. There lingered still a 
shred of summer's green, crowded close to autumn's yellow and mellow brown. Yet 
there was nothing riotous about the glory of it all. Every shade was vivid and dis- 
tinct, yet each blended with the other so perfectly that it gave to the whole a certain 
subdued splendor which belongs to holy places. 

I looked — and as I looked there came a great silence into my soul. And out of 
that great silence I thought I prayed. I thought I prayed that I might never be little 
again, that I might never be unkind, that I might never grasp at temporal things 
until my hands were too full to serve. 

But it may have been adoration that I felt — adoration and praise for the God 
who could transform the whole country-side into a place of worship, and make every 
burning bush a call to prayer. D. M. G., '39 


Long ago, 

Barabbas, thief 

Returning to his squalid hut 

Upon a hill, 

Held his frail, crippled mother 

In his arms, 

And told her how a man 

Whose name was Jesus 

Was condemned to die that day. 

The mother, 

Looking out across the valley 

Saw, on distant hill, 

Three crosses bold 

Against a storm-beclouded sky. 

Barabbas speaks: 

"Mother, upon the middle cross 

He hangs! 

The one who died for me!" 


Upon a distant hill 

I see a cross! 

And on that cross hangs he 

Who for Barabbas died. 

Yet, not alone for sinner 

Of so long ago, died he. 

I see, upon the middle cross, today, 

The Christ who died for me! O. K. B., '39 



Again I hear the bells. It's time for classes. 

The corridors are lively with laughter and early morning greetings. . . . Some 
way the persistent urge to sleep is forgotten. Minds rebellious against another day's 
work become eager and expectant. Drooping eyelids and drowsy thoughts have no 
place in our day's activity! 

And then into the classroom where we discuss men and kings — life — the mys- 
terious and the simple; where we try to find truth, beautiful and strong. Perhaps 
it's theme day. There's a whole world about us, but nothing to write about. Or 
maybe we look through a microscope and try to see things that we don't believe are 
there. Little cells that should be sharply outlined are blurred, grayish masses that 
mean nothing. Some of us find the urge to sleep slightly annoying again when class- 
room lectures begin — or watch the progress of the hands of the clock with exceeding 
interest. Others are intent, eager, alive, interested. And all the time wise professors 
calmly seem to observe nothing — but really observe all. 

Fanciful and meditative I walk across the campus. A beautiful collection of 
little pictures all about me stirs my thoughts. It is winter now. Bleak, barren trees 
shiver against the cold. Chill gleams of silver slide from the moon through the 
branches. Snow-storms bluster and blow fitfully through the night. But when 
morning comes the snow will have wandered out on the wind over the trees, the 
lawns, the buildings, and the campus will seem to be a wondrous fairyland blind- 
ingly beautiful. Yes, it is winter now; but soon the spring will come. The last 
snow-wreath will melt. The delicate pink of magnolia petals will flutter gently 
over the lawn. Myriads of tiny buttercups, their bright little heads poised daintily 
on frail little stems, will peek out of the grass everywhere. The fragrant breath of 
apple blossoms . . . the soft inviting breeze . . . benches filled with gay, laughing 
voices — all speak of Spring. Too bad! The classroom's likely to be woefully neg- 
lected then. 

As I walk I linger near the Mansion, proud dignity in every line of it. There's 
something about the Mansion. . . . The Cardboard Palace, weatherbeaten and 
battered, is still absurdly dear. The Administration Building, business-like, practi- 
cal, efficient, gives one a satisfying feeling of pride and reliability. Laughing voices 
and high spirits can almost always be found in the Manchester. Then there's the 
Chapel, unperturbed and sedate; — and the Girls' Dormitory, prim and precise from 
the outside, but bright and active on the inside. Still there's something about the 
Mansion that arrests my attention more than all the others. Perhaps it's the sugges- 
tion of fortitude — of strength —of simplicity and stateliness — or of Puritan traditions 
and the time when ladies wore brocaded gowns and beribboned slippers and when 
gentlemen powdered their hair and wore buckles on their shoes. 

But it isn't the campus and the buildings with all their attraction; nor the class- 
rooms, the library, or even the books with all their wisdom that make E.N.C. It's 
. . . youth and character — youth with loving hearts and awakening minds keenly 
sensitive to the beauty of nature and of life, but with hearts and minds more sensitive 
to the beauty of Christ, character becoming rich and noble from the daily contact 
with Eternal Good. L. K. K., '40 



All the world are bargain-hunting — 

So are we! 

Some are looking for amusement; 

Wealth they see 

In the pleasure of the moment. 

But in vain, 

For the hollow joys of earth all 

End in pain. 

Some would make an education 

Their one goal, 

And will give a lifetime's striving — 

Give their soul — 

In the hope that they may one day 

Gain their aim, 

And acquire some fame and favor, 

Just a name. 

All the world are bargain-hunting 

With their souls; 

Spending priceless life and heaven to 

Reach their goals; 

Spending gold for ashes with their 

Latest breath; 

Bartering in Time's exchanges 

Life for death. 

Yes, we too are bargain-hunting. 

We would know 

What true riches life can yield us 

Here below. 

We have found a lasting pleasure, 

And the joy that knows no measure; 

We shall gain eternal treasure — 

We have Christ. 

Take our heart, our strength, our minds, our 

Love — our all. 

All is nothing if we can but 

Hear His call. N. R. S., '38 



Twenty-one! What a final ring those words have. Twenty-one — the goal of 
every adolescent, the end and aim of every callow-youth. Once — it may have been 
last year or the year before — I thought that my twenty-first birthday would reveal 
a new world to me. Of a sudden, people would recognize me as an adult, respect mv 
opinions, and treat me as an equal. I should be able to vote. I could get married if 
I wished. I should be free of parental restrictions. In short, I should be a 

But now — in another week I shall be twenty-one, and I am dreading the crisis. 
Behind me lies my childhood — for in the eyes of the law I shall no longer be an in- 
fant. Before me lies a dreary prospect — the dull job of being a "grown-up". Instead 
of freeing, twenty-one will fetter me. 

Yes, I dread growing old. Twenty-one is so definitely the end of one epoch of 
life. If I "cut up", yield to mv whims, or play practical jokes, I mav instantly be 
abashed by the reminder, "Act your age!" Grown-up — what a static state to get 
into. I don't want to stop growing: I want to keep on growing always. "Vegetate" 
is a homely and applicable term for the grown-up. How many of our acquaintances 
are vegetating with no more initiative than a potato and no more imagination than 
a dish of cabbage. 

Twenty-one used to stand as a far-off goal by which I would measure progress. 
"By the time I'm twenty-one I shall have done such and such," I would say. How 
few of my young ambitions have been realized! Twenty-one seemed a pleasantlv 
distant state of middle age where I should be old enough to be appreciated and young 
enough to get a little joy out of life. Queer ideas these youngsters have! Now I 
know that twenty-one isn't exactly doddering — it's too close to twenty for that. 
As for fun, I expect to enjoy life's absurdities as much next week as I do this. I'll 
wager that I'm not going to feel a bit different on mv twentv-first birthday than I 
did on my twentieth or mv nineteenth or mv eighteenth. I might even go so far as 
to wager that I'll probably feel the same at twenty-five as I do today. 

Time takes vou by surprise; he creeps up and pounces. What a horror if I wake 
up next Thursday morning and find that Time has sneaked up to make me thirtv-one 
instead of twenty-one! C. M. H., '41 


I saw a hill that stood against the sky, 

Undaunted, proud, 
And in its hair the sun was buried deep. 

It never bowed 
To earth, but always held its head up high. 
I saw a cloud sweep down from out the blue 

Into the shade, 
Obscuring all the earth and sky from view. 

I felt afraid 
Somehow, because the hill was hidden too. 
The cloud brushed sofrlv through the valley there, 

Spectral and still, 
And vanished in the silent sky, somewhere. 

1 saw my hill 
With sunlight tangled in its tousled hair. 

D. H. S., '38 




To you, Ross Emrick, our friend and coach, we the students wish to express our 
gratitude for your contribution to E.N.C. When we think of the long hours you 
have spent in trying to make our sports life interesting and profitable to us, we begin 
to appreciate the effort you have put forth in order to give us the athletic facilities 
which we now enjoy. No detail has been too small for your attention. 

Faithfully you have planned our programs for each season, and conscientiously 
you have posted and carried out schedules. You have given our gym classes the 
interest and pep they needed. You have provided every game with the necessary 
umpire or referee. You have helped us obtain better equipment for our gym, our 
tennis courts, and our athletic field. 

We are grateful not only for this improvement of our athletic facilities, but also 
for the superb sportsmanship you have demonstrated as you have played with us. 
We like your hard fighting spirit and your commanding friendliness. Sometimes we 
have kicked about the way things have gone. Sometimes we have made trouble for 
you — have perhaps made you wonder now and then why you ever undertook the job. 
Perhaps we have discouraged you from attempting some things you would have 
liked to do. 

But honestly, down deep in our hearts is a firm confidence in you and in the huge 
sincerity of your purpose. We know what it meant for you to come to E.N.C. and 
we believe that you are on the pathway to a life of service. We thank you, Ross 
Emrick, and wish for you God's richest blessing.

Our Athletic Council, consisting of eight members, is an innovation this \ car. 
In previous years since 1923 when the Athletic Clubs were formed, there had been 
two separate societies, each with its regular quota of officers and each looking out 
for its own interests. It was decided this year that the best interests of both societies 
would be furthered by union, and accordingly the Athletic Council was elected. 
Each society, Y.M.A.A. and Y.W.A.A., elected its own representatives to the 
Council. Meetings are held to determine what activities shall be carried on and how 
they shall be conducted. This year we have been provided with an interesting pro- 
gram of football, basket-ball, softball, tennis, ping-pong and baseball. 

Now a word about the members comprising our Council. It is headed by a 
popular young couple — popular not only with the students but with each other. 
Bob is an all-round, hard-playing athlete, and Esther is one of our star forwards. 
Red Foster and Van, the vice presidents, are very versatile, playing everything 
from ping-pong through basket-ball to tennis. Bertha is one of the best all- 
round girl basket-ball players we have, playing either forward or guard extremely 
well. Harry is an interesting figure to watch, whether he is running the hundred 
yards or stamping his (eet to scare the opposing player in basket-ball. Sophie shows 
up equally well whether she is sending the ball over the tennis net or safely through 
the basket. And lanky Lee seems well fitted for playing center on the Oxford and 
Sophomore teams, for whether it is basket-ball, tennis, baseball, or recreation hour 
in the Manchester, he is always in the midst of things. And under such capable 
leadership, the sports world of E.N.C. marches on. 


First Semester 

The sports parade started off with a bang this year at E.N.C. Our revamped 
tennis courts, though not entirely repaired, could be used and they were kept busy 
most of the time. Touch football called out many enthusiasts among the fellows 
and cheering devotees among the girls. The first official game was between the new 
and old students. Nobels were victorious in the first inter-society scrimmage. Quite 
early the football was laid to rest until another season and the basket-ball and referee 
whistle were brought into play. 

The first game of the season was the Oxford-Nobel triple-header. Spirit ran 
high that night as the Oxford red and white emerged victorious with two out of 
three games. The gym was gay in blue and white and red and the Oxford band added 
color to the occasion. Since then the Nobel second team has twice won from the 
Oxfords while the Oxford first team has won two games by a large score. The final 
result of class games was not decided until February 17, when the Juniors came out 
of a three-way tie for first place with the Seniors second and the Sophomores third. 
The Academy-Theologs had a hard fighting team and the Freshmen had a team that 
really played together, but the opposition was a little too strong for them. The 
E.N.C. All Stars played four outside games this semester, two of them with churches 
in the vicinity. The Nobel girls won the only society game played. The Junior- 
Senior girls had a hard time keeping the strong Sophomore six down where the 
upperclassmen thought they belonged. The Freshmen came along following as 
dutiful Freshmen should. 

Although skating is not on our regular college sports program, it has come to 
be one of the favorites this year. The Sailor's Pond has seen a large number of our 
students there for thrills and spills, both in the afternoons and by moonlight. 

Second Semester 

During the second semester the E.N.C. All Stars have played four games, three 
with churches and one with the Quincy Y.M.C.A. Because the first-semester cham- 
pionship playoff ran into the second semester, there have not been so many class 
games for the supremacy in this half. 

We know that spring is here, for already we hear the thud of the baseball hitting 
the mitt, and soon the scene will shift to the Athletic Field. We are looking for 
several good Oxford-Nobel games, both in baseball and in softball. Our tennis 
tournament will start as soon as the courts are put in playing condition. We are 
wondering if Ross will be able to repeat his victory of last year. 

And so we come down to the end of our sports season, so far as the Nautilus is 
concerned. But before we leave the picture with you, perhaps something should be 
said about ping-pong, for it is becoming almost a major sport with many of us. We 
have several excellent players, among both the boys and the girls, and on nearly any 
afternoon there may be heard from the Recreation Rooms the chatter of devotees or 
would-be devotees of the little celluloid ball. 

We present the All Star teams for 1937-1938 as picked by the Nautilus Staff: 

Forward R. Shoff D. Marple 

Forward E. Cox J. Goodnow 

Center E. Lee A. M. Shoff 

Guard R. Benson B. Rutkowski 

Guard J. Coleman E. Garrison 

Guard . C. Smith 



Bottles of ink — red ink and purple ink and India ink. Stacks of pencils — blue 
and red and indifferent, some with points but many without. The floor blanketed 
in a young snowfall of paper clippings. The Editor's desk covered with year-books 
and catalogues and samples and contracts and grey hairs. The curtains of the Nautilus 
room drawn, with light shining through as curious Freshmen whisper, "What's 
going on in there?" Various people running about campus with loaded cameras, 
taking the usual and the unusual snapshots. Reporters staying awake in chapel and 
reviewing Campus Cameras and asking numberless questions to find out what happened 
and where and when and why. But now, the last glimmers of twilight, stealing 
through the windows of our staff room, find the desk bare and the room vacant and 
deserted. The staff members have fled and another Nautilus has gone to press. 

But it is with a certain feeling of regret that we put away our cans of glue and 
our scissors, because we know that never again can we build a college year-book. 
And honestly, it has been fun. We have stayed up late at night sometimes, and we 
have stolen time from other things, perhaps; but now that it is all over we are more 
sure than ever that it has been worth inestimably more than all we have put into it. 
There is a certain satisfaction which comes to those who create things. It is the joy 
of making something original and novel and new, and that is the joy we have felt 
as we have seen this book develop and grow in our hands. It is a satisfaction that 
never can come from learning what someone else has written. It can not come from 
copying what someone else has made. It comes only by the exercise of creative per- 
sonality in making something distinctly your own. That is why we have enjoyed 
making this Nautilus, and that is why we would do it all over again if we had the 
opportunity. We do not maintain that our book is perfect, but it does make us happy 
to lift it up, and then stand back with you for whom we have made it and say, "This 
is our book. With all its good points and all its bad ones, it is ours and we are proud 
of it." However you who read may regard our efforts, we the Nautilus staff are 
contented in the knowledge that we have done our best. 

Our many books of quotations and literature and ideas we have placed again upon 
the Library shelves, where they may sleep until awakened by the rude hands of an- 
other year-book staff. We have swept the floor and cleaned out the desk and thrown 
away everything that might indicate how we went about building our book. 

To you, the Nautilus staff of 1939, we bequeath a new leaf and a new opportunity. 
You must start where we started — at the bottom — and set your goal and then travel 
unswervingly toward it. If your work is better than ours has been, we shall not 
envy you. We shall be happy for your success and for the credit your endeavors will 
bring to E.N.C. To you we leave the responsibility of carrying on the traditions 
which we have tried to uphold. "To you from failing hands we throw the torch — 
be yours to hold it high!" Your Nautilus Staff

Fresh: "I don't know." 
Soph: "I am not prepared." 
Junior: "I do not remember." 
Senior: "I do not believe I can add anything to what has already been said." 

Prof. Soteriades (in Chemistry class): "Now this experiment is very important. 
If it should fail we would all be blown to bits. Everyone draw closer so you can 
follow me better." 

DeShaw: "Are late hours good for one?" 
Andree: "No, but they are all right for two." 

It always makes some people laugh 
So wonderful a treat 
To see an athlete run a mile 
And only move two feet. 

Prof. White seems to have contracted "professoritis". The other night he is 
said to have put a milk bottle in bed and to have gone out and sat on the porch step 
all night. 

V. Trefry: "Why are some women called 'Amazons'?" 
G. Foster: "Because they are so wide at the mouth." 

L. Walker: "Harold, has absolute zero ever been reached?" 

H. Weller: "Sure." 

Walker: "What's your proof?" 

Weller:"Just take a look at my report card." 


A man convinced against his will 
Is of the same opinion still. 
A maid convinced against her will 
Is not convinced or even still. 

"It's the small things in life that tell", remarked Ruth Clark as she dragged her 
young brother from under the sofa. 

M. Hiller: "I believe this school is haunted." 

C. Smith: "Why?" 

M. Hiller: "Well, they're always talking about the school spirit." 

Husband: "Knowest thou how to bringge up thy child?" 

Wife: "Certainlle, sluggarde." 

Husband: "Then snappe to. Thy child is at the bottom of ye cistern." 


Getting out a year-book is no picnic. 
If we print jokes people say we are silly; 
If we don't, they say we are too serious. 

If we publish things from other books, we're too lazy to think. 
If we stay on the job, we should be out getting news; 
If we're out getting news, we aren't attending to business. 
If we don't print contributions we don't show appreciation; 
If we do print them the book is full of junk. 

Somebody will probablv say we got this from another book — 
We did. 

Barbee: "Is it true that mosquitoes weep?" 
Bell: "Very likely. I've seen a moth ball." 

Prof. Munro: "Tomorrow we will take the life of John Milton. Please come 

Can't study in the fall — gotta play football. 
Can't study in the winter — gotta play basket-ball. 
Can't study in the spring — gotta play baseball. 
Can't study in the summer — gotta girl. 

Juanita: I paid my fourth visit to the beauty parlor today. 
Art: It seems strange that you can't get waited on. 

Pete: Could you live on $25.00 a week? 
Eva: Yes, but no longer.

Prof. Spangenberg: "Can anyone put this sentence in Shakespearean language: 
'Here comes a bow-legged man'?" 

D. Metz: "Behold, what is this that approacheth in parenthesis?" 

The more you study, the more you know; 

The more you know, the more you forget; 
The more you forget, the less you know — 

So why study? 

The less you study, the less you know; 

The less you know, the less you forget; 
The less you forget, the more you know — 

So why study? 

Prof, and Mrs. Marquart: "We'd like to have you for dinner Sunday." 
R. Kirkland: "I'm afraid you'll find me rather tough."
